|I need to kick-start my plants

I have two tomato plants that I planted in March. They had an extremely rough start experiencing everything from snow to extreme heat. They aren't flowering anymore. They are alive and green, but there are no flowers, which means, no tomatoes.
I bought two other tomato plants about a month or so ago, and they aren't do anything either.
I have....8 or 9 bell pepper plants. They aren't doing anything. Two of them had peppers on them when I bought them. Instead of growing and firming up, the little peppers have kinda become squishy.
I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I've even attempted to give them some miracle grow, but nothing seems to be working.
My cucumber plant, on the other hand, is trying to take over the garden! I'm going to move it to a different square tonight or tomorrow so that it has more room.
I'm really getting discouraged because my garden isn't doing anything. Even the two flowers I planted seem to be struggling. I mean, it doesn't get much easier than flowers! Nothing I started from seeds survived (radishes, cauliflower, and lettuce, all dead).
So, do you any of you have any ideas that might help my plants get started?
